DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step
You can often tell how healthy a dog is by coat appearance. Grooming your dog regularly offers clues to her health: It nips potential health problems, like allergies, poor nutrition, parasites, or diseases, in the bud, or at least gives you some early warning about them. Grooming also makes your dog (and you) comfortable socializing. And it stops the spread of dirt, fleas, and germs.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to grooming your dog yourself is strengthening your bond with her. It can be a fun time to share, and it helps build trust.
DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show by Jorge Bendersky, and foreword by Cesar Milan, will show you how to take the best care of your dog, regardless of breed, temperament, or age. Practical step-by-step photos will take you through everything you need to know to bathe and trim your dog, plus care for her nails, ears, teeth, and more. Learn how to train her to relax and enjoy grooming.
“While you can make excuses not to take your dog to the groomer, you have no reason to make excuses for not doing it yourself any longer.” –Cesar Millan
